The original school was built about 1859 and was an old flint/cob building. The facade of this building can be viewed at the old school site, Chapel Lane. It was built on the site of the old tithe barn and pond by the Reverend Jamen Michael, Vicar of Sturminster Newton. The school mistress appointed was Miss Eliza Vivian assisted by two teachers.
Our school is a happy place where OFSTED has confirmed that Milborne School has high expectations with well-motivated children who make above average progress in a secure and stimulating environment. Like you, we want the best for your child when in our care.
Partnership is highly valued and we believe everyone involved in the life of the school has a contribution to make in enabling children to grow and learn with purpose and enthusiasm. Partnership is the key to success. What this means at Milborne St Andrew First School is explained more fully as you read through the prospectus. You are always welcome to come into our school.
